My elderly Aunt passed away this year. It fell to me to sell her home which was in poor condition. Even though I once had experience in real estate, I didn’t know where to start since this was not a typical situation. I received many phone calls and postcards from investors to sell her home. But a very thoughtful, professional letter got my attention and that letter was from Jim. When the time came I called him and met with him at the house. My first impression was his sincerity and again his professional manner. He explained in detail the way he works. He answered any questions I had without hesitation and put me at ease at a very difficult time. I am a skeptical person but I instinctively trusted Jim.
There were many challenges with the house but Jim came back with a fair price. In doing his due diligence another major issue came to light. But Jim was able to bring me a buyer who would be able to deal with the issues and make the purchase.
I was always impressed by Jim’s follow up. He returned phone calls or texts promptly. If he didn’t have the answer to my question he made sure he found out and got back to me. Jim was always courteous and considerate. I am grateful I responded to his letter. I recommend Jim to anyone looking to sell their home, most especially if it is in a depressed condition and you are uncertain how to proceed. Jim will guide you and deal with you fairly and honestly.
With little to no experience in the housing market, I found myself in the middle of a difficult and lengthy attempt to sell an aged estate property. One after another potential buyer expressed no interest and told me that the property had little appeal. I had just about reached a dead end in my efforts when Jim Huckfeldt came into the picture. Jim approached me with a classy notice detailing his experience in buying and selling all types of properties, including distressed ones. He proved to be an honest evaluator of the property, a persistent and knowledgeable investor and most importantly, a consummate professional. Jim took the lead in navigating the inspection and permitting process necessary for a sale and ultimately was able to find a buyer who saw value in the property. In the more than 30 years I spent in the business world negotiating contracts, the traits I valued most were competence, transparency and integrity. Jim Huckfeldt exhibited all of these and more.
First Team (and especially James Huckfeldt) took a very difficult and stressful situation and treated me with kindness, patience, and fairness. I am so thankful that First Team came into my life virtually eliminating one of the most complex pieces of the estate puzzle.
This was a complicated transaction, that Jim made easy. It started with the appraisal. He took his time asked many questions and returned with a very fair offer. Explained in detail and showed me different options I had for the sale.
Unforeseen things came up, all on my end. Jim assisted in addressing these issues which took over 2 months. During this time we were in constant contact and always advised the correct course of action. At no time was I rushed or pressured, allowed as much time as necessary. I found Jim to be very honest and up front about every step. He was very precise and always took his time to explain everything. From the appraisal, to the offer, to the close everything stayed the same. Thank you, Jim.
I would highly recommend contacting Jim Huckfeldt when considering any sale of property. I am cautious and skeptical by nature but Jim quickly calmed my nerves exhibiting professionalism, sincerity and trustworthiness from the first time we spoke. He was straightforward with all offers and contracts. Most importantly, Jim proved to be a man of his word displaying integrity and compassion unheard of in the realty world and he earned my respect.
